This guy set up a user id with a valid e-mail address, activated it, then signed on to our forum, and started posting. He's not on the list of members because we axed him. We had the forum set up so that a new user could activate their account by themselves as long as they had a valid e-mail address. This eliminated spam bots, but not the creeps. Right now new forum members are not allowed until we get the forum permissions set so they can't send out PMs like this again.
And I know what you mean, I have memberships to other ma forums too (I'm a lurker everywhere
) and have been getting this from other forums.
